130g reef tank
2 yellow tail blue damsels
one three stripe damsel
one sargent major damsel
a few corals
(two deceased gobies, and a royal gramma, over the weekend)
Today when i got up my tang was not acting right. Usually he would be swimming back and forth across the entire tank, and today he is hiding out for the most part. He is eating well.
Over the weekend i lost 3 of my new fish, two sleeper gobies, and a royal gramma.
My conditions are all great. ammonia 0, nitrite 0 and nitrate between 5 and 10. My iron is non detectable, and my phosphorate is also at 0.
my anenemie is looking not so great, (he was huge last week, and he is sorta small with most of his tentacles pulled inside)
my corals are also looking not so great (same thing as the anenemie)
I have a terrible case of that slimy rust colored alge COVERING every spot that the light hits in my tank, and it is starting to cover my corals
the tank is about 3 months old, and the current fish came from an my 33g tank, as well as some of the live rock, and much of the crushed coral, and filter medium.
we just put in the second mh
light, now we have one on both ends (is this too much light?) As well we have some marine glow florescent lights.
Can any one offer some advice as to what might be going on? Can the alge be hurting the fish? I took a turkey baster and blew it away from the corals, and that worked for the time being.
